Great concert! And Lindsey Buckingham is truly one of the most underrated guitarists in all of pop music.

I don't know what you were listening to ... wonderful concert!! Hey - we all get older, but Stevie Nicks still has it. Missed Christy, but still the best concert! Loved it!

I really enjoyed the concert (other than the guy who asked me where he could get some weed and there was the awkward moment where a drunk woman tried to put her arms around me and give me a big kiss on the lips - she's lucky my wife didn't toss her into the crowd)... Buckingham's guitar playing was awsome!! Fleetwood is still good drummer and Nicks was fine also...

I agree, Christine is missed..,. Nick's/supporting singers don't come close to replicating Christine's vocals... It was quite apparent with some of the songs. The other thing I wish, is... Buckingham should have done the electric version of "Looking out for love" overall, it was a fun walk down memory lane!! I miss the good old day's!

Didn't see the concert but the headline isn't surprising. Most of FM's better songs are the ones on which Nicks isn't the featured vocalist.

These days Nicks sounds like a cancer patient using an electronic voicebox. It would have been better if Nicks had retired and McVie stayed with the band.

Buckingham has always been the main talent in the band since he joined. Stevie has received way too much of the credit over the years. She is a mediocre talent that has always needed the songwriting skils of Buckingham, Petty, or Henly to prop her songs up. Buckingham deserves so much more credit than he has received. As stated by others, he is an underappreciated guitarist. He is a great guitarist.

The concert was great. What makes it even better is that all four are 64 or older. Mick and John are in their 70's. Are you kidding me?! That is amazing!!! Money well spent.
